# 2D Shapes Lesson

This Year 1 2D Shapes lesson covers the prior learning of recognising 2D shapes, before moving onto the main skill of identifying 2D shapes in different sizes and orientations.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
